Last Year's Winners, Teams on the Rise
Make for Competitive A-10 Top to Bottom


Don’t count anybody out. That’s the level of anticipation that greets the 2012-13 Atlantic 10 season. Among the 16 teams comprising the league – which now includes newcomers Virginia Commonwealth and Butler -- six received first-place votes in the league’s preseason poll voted on by coaches.

Dayton emerged as the frontrunner with seven votes followed by Richmond and Charlotte, each with a vote apiece. Duquesne nabbed four of the votes, Temple one and defending regular season champion St. Bonaventure notched three.

So it’s a guess which team will hold the trophy on March 16 when the Atlantic 10 culminates with an historic championship game televised by the ESPN Networks in Brooklyn’s state-of-the-art Barclays Center? A handful of questions to consider:

•Will preseason favorite and defending A-10 tournament champion Dayton prevail despite losing four of its top six scorers?

•Can St. Bonaventure follow its most successful season in school history with another storied run?

•Will Richmond return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2005 behind all-league picks Genevieve Okoro, Becca Wann and Rachael Bilney?

•How dangerous is Charlotte, led by senior forward Jennifer Hailey, one of five starters back for the 49ers?

This much we know. The A-10 continues to evolve as one of the top conferences in the sport.

AMHERST, Mass. - On the back of a three-point night by junior Michael Pereira and 17 saves by sophomore netminder Kevin Boyle, the UMass hockey team rolled to a 4-0 win over Providence at the Mullins Center on Friday evening. The shutout, which marked the first of Boyle's collegiate career and was the squad's first over the Friars (4-4-1, 3-3-0 HEA) since 2004, moves the Minutemen to 3-4-0 overall and 2-4-0 in Hockey East.

Periera tallied his first goal of the season and chipped in two assists for his third career multi-point game, the first since his hat trick against Providence on Feb. 11. Troy Power logged his second straight multi-point effort, notching a goal and recording a helper. Juniors Colin Shea and Branden Gracel each added goals, as well, their second and third of the season, respectively.
